cQc #346 ~ You're the Best!

Hello and a happy Tuesday to you! Ready for a new palette from ColourQ? This is another one perfect for Father's Day or any masculine cards you might be needing. I'll be linking this card up at CASology where their cue word this week is masculine.



I've paired Precious Remembrance Shop stamps with Pretty Pink Posh dies for this card. Using a border stamp from the Holiday Wishes set, I stamped a plaid pattern onto Marshmallow cardstock using PTI Smokey Shadow and Simply Chartreuse inks. It's die cut with a Stitched Tags die. I added a little snippet of Bordering Blue (remember that envelope I found for last week's challenge!) to the bottom. It was cut with a Stitched Borders 2 die. I added the hand-cut tie to the back of the tag and popped on two tiny navy buttons. The sentiment and stitched line are from the retired Mom & Dad stamp set.



Masculine cards always take me longer to design, how about you? But I'm pretty happy with this one! Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting ~Lisa
